Ariel’s Influences

Likewise is also heavily influenced by James Joyce’s Ulysses. The writing style of Joyce is incorporated into Schrag’s work but instead in the form of a graphic novel. Though told in a straightforward fashion, some portions of the comic drift off from Ariel’s storytelling and go on a tangent (such as Schrag talking with her friends about the “It” factor. This writing style challenges the audience to trail off with the author and Scharg does this many times throughout the graphic novel keeping the reader engaged.
